BASED: SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA
Jamie is undoubtedly one of Australia’s most recognisable talents – hosting many of Australia’s top rating programs including Backyard Blitz, The Block, Renovation Rescue and Dancing on Ice. However it was in his role as host of TV sensation Backyard Blitz where he first captured and inspired the imagination of the Australian public, successfully making gardening ‘hip’ again.
A successful garden make-over show, Backyard Blitz and the team have received multiple gold logies for Most Popular Lifestyle Show. He consolidated this through his role as host of two series of the reality renovation show The Block. Jamie Durie is a qualified horticulturist and landscape designer, and founder of the international award-winning design company PATIO Landscape Architecture and Design. He is also a best-selling author and publisher, television host and businessman, managing his own successful line of merchandised product, Patio by Jamie Durie. He has authored five books, Patio – Garden Design and Inspiration, The Outdoor Room, The Source Book, Outdoor Kids and Inspired.
In 2007, Jamie signed with the Seven Network and will host ‘Australia’s best backyards’, a lifestyle factual series that will take a peak over the nation’s fences to find the best backyard in the country. Jamie is also developing a promising and exciting new project for Seven in the second half of the year. Just recently he made his American TV debut, appearing on The Oprah Winfrey Show. Jamie has also taken the floor as one of the stars on ‘Dancing with the Stars’.
The qualified horticulturalist and landscape designer is passionate about the environment and is one of 85 Australian ambassadors who’ve been chosen to work with former American vice president Al Gore’s green group. He is also ambassador for ‘Planet Ark’s National Tree Day’ and sits on the board of the Royal Botanic Gardens Foundation in Sydney. As part of his commitment to ‘Dancing with the Stars’, Jamie has chosen to dance for PLAN, one of the world’s largest community development organisations committed to ending child poverty. He has been a PLAN Ambassador since 2000 and visited Sri Lanka and Uganda to meet his three sponsor children and see the work the charity does to support health, education, housing and family livelihood programs.
Jamie is an accomplished speaker and polished master of ceremonies who delivers plenty of content in a light but very informative manner.
